In the middle of the waterfall is a large rock tissue covered with trees that split the water into three streams like three white silk strips.

Day and night, the waterfall rolls down on flat rocks, sending out countless white dust particles that cover a large area. On sunny days, the steam also creates a shimmering rainbow. At the foot of Ban Gioc waterfall is a wide, mirror-like river surface. The two banks are grass and evergreen forest flap.
